I’ve been working on some prints to take over to the condo next week. We are in the process of updating our decor, and the group liked the idea of my photographs of Maui going up around the condo. It’s been a good learning process for me. I poured through about six years of photos, and carefully chose the images that would transfer well into the sepia medium. They had to be very strong compositionally. I couldn’t rely on the brilliant tropical colors of the foliage or blossoms or even the beautiful purple-pink of the sunset to carry the image. It’s made my eye keener, and I’m looking forward to visiting some of my favorite sights to reshoot some flowers and plants purely for their design and form.

An artist who inspired me in this process is Kenn Briner. I met him a few years ago at the Grand Wailea where he was vending some of his images. Check out his link over there on the left.

We leave for a short jaunt to the condo in Kihei on February 12th. I am taking the new 5D mk II for its first trip to the islands. With only four days to “relax” in Maui, I will be a very busy shooter. I already have filled the days with trips to my favorite locations to photograph in gorgeous 21 MP quality. I post this shot taken about 14 months ago with my 5MP PowerShot. LightRoom helped clean it up for me. I cannot wait to see what my new camera can do in one of the most beautiful places in                                                                 the world
